Re: What can premature birth cause?
My son was 27 weeks early and also has Down Syndrome. His only health problems relating to being premature is his lungs. When he gets sick it settles in his lungs and causes wheezing. He uses a nebulizer when needed and Flovent during the winter months. We were very lucky. He also has a extreme case of reflux but I have never read anywhere that was an outcome of being premature.
